The Titan Crane is a century-old crane that has been transformed into a museum, lookout point and bungee venue!
The Titan is century-old crane and one of Scotland’s most unusual feats of engineering that has been transformed into a popular tourist attraction.
Commissioned in the first years of the 20th century, the crane was built in the heart of the shipbuilding hub of Clydebank and finished in 1907. A hundred years later, Titan Crane reopened as one of Scotland’s most unique tourist attractions, acting as a lookout point over Glasgow.
A trip to the Titan lets you travel back in time to relive Clydebank’s past, as it also acts as a museum celebrating the area’s shipbuilding heritage. Among its exhibits, you can watch the launches of the Queen Mary and QE2 from John Brown’s in the 1930s and 1960s.
The Titan towers 150 ft over the River Clyde, and on a clear evening you can see the mighty cantilever crane from miles away, thanks to its nightly illuminations. Well worth a trip on a nice evening just to see the illuminations!
The Titan is open seasonally from May to October each year. Adrenaline activities including abseils, bungee jumps and swings from the crane’s summit are available on limited dates.
Online bookings are available.
